If you stand with your back to a wall the camera will be pushed into first person view. If you collect a node while doing this it will interrupt the collection of the node.
Does that make sense?
Happens quite frequently as ore nodes are often close to cliffwalls
Also if I press any key while gathering it is interrupted. Very annoying since you want to chat or check map or whatever while gathering.
Attention Zenimax: Stamina builds don't hold up to magicka builds, and this is causing most of your class imbalance. It makes melee weapons and bows weaker than staves and class abilities. It makes medium and heavy armor less desirable than light armor. Fix this imbalance, and you'll address most of your balance issues.
